    So sorry to hear about Ted. We worked together as the “family of eight” during the good times at CP Air and Canadian Airlines and Ted was always our rock. We never saw him flustered and he was always able to put perspective on things, a true gentleman. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

    Angie and Family;

    Lorraine and I are so sorry for your loss. We have only known you and Ted for 20 years since our arrival in Calgary, but it seems like much longer than that. Ted was a true friend, a real gentleman who was alway honest and sincere, full of advice and always wanting to share an experience. We will miss him at our club events, and who ever owns that white fastback, it will always be known as Ted’s car.
    Take care of yourself Angie, may God help you in your time of grief.
    Lorraine and BoB

    Sorry to hear of Ted’s Passing. I know the last few years have been a struggle for him as well as the Family. I have known both Ted and Angie for about the last 10 years as I am a fellow member of Prostate Cancer Canada Network Calgary and the Alberta Mustang Club. He will be missed by both Groups. Ted always struck me as a fine man and that’s how he will be remembered, Angie and his Family should be proud.

    Best Personal Regards,

    Angie, Karen, and Family — We were all saddened by the news of Ted’s passing. For several years, Ted and my Dad shared their interest in military history by trading books back and forth. Karen and I always had a good laugh whenever we dropped off a BIG bag of books to each other for them.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Take care Angie.

    I know how hard it is for you at this time. Having gone through the loss of a life partner and friend I can sympathize with you. I can say in all honesty that I never knew a more honest and down to earth man than Ted. I still think of the many shows and get to gethers we attended with you two great people.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you.
